Making a pot of tea is a ceremony that goes back thousands of years. In many countries it is a ritual with elaborate traditions. We hope you’ll embrace your own ceremony to enjoy a drink that brings both wellbeing and health.
Don’t use the water already in the kettle as it will have lost its oxygen and the tea will be flat and lacking in flavour
Add your favourite Trumpers loose leaf tea to the pot – one teaspoon for each person and one for the pot!
Amino acids that provide the flavour to the pot dissolve at lower temperatures to tannin and so if the water is too hot then the tea will always taste astringent.
Add milk to your favourite cup and pour the tea into your cup through a strainer and enjoy!
Add your milk first because if you are using china, it instantly cools the tea from the pot and stops the cup from cracking.
Rinse out the teapot and use the leaves for compost…or for reading your fortune!
